33cl, from De Hopduvel Gent, complex, hazy, good head, very good brew, but not a topper Skeegle (566) - Maryland, USA - JUL 16, 2008
I wasn’t extremely impressed by this beer, especially after having Het Anker’s other excellent beers. This one was just pure yeastiness. It was like a honey drenched yeast bomb. I had high expectations, but I guess abbey tripel isn’t a style of mine, as I have had bad experiences in the past. SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUL 11, 2008
750ml bottle: Shimmering yellow pour with a three-finger whipped head that settles into a firm cap on top. The aroma is all yeast and honey - lots of ripe banana, pear, sweet apple - wrapped in an ethery blanket. Big, chewy mouthfeel. Hot alcohol vapor fills the mouth with each sip. Dirty, but sweet, malts offer honey and sugary toffee while the fruit esthers continue to bombard the tongue. Cool down the fusels in this and it would be more enjoyable. As is, still darn good.

Hazy golden color with a medium slightly fluffy white head. Aroma is yeasty, grassy, lightly sweet, slightly spiced - bits of orange and cloves. Flavor is surprisingly dry for a big Belgian tripel. Spicy notes in great depth, assumedly at least in part from the yeast. Very nice complex beer that, though fairly dry, has nice fruity and never bitter qualities. gmonroe10 (243) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 9, 2008
Bottle. Pours a a light amber with a large creamy white head. Sweet fruit aroma, no alcohol. Flavor is sweet as well, very prominent malt. Sweet dry quick finish.

Pours cloudy amber-gold with bubbly white head. Scents of bananas, pepper, yeast, and a dusty background. Dust reflected in flavor and coupled with sweeter malts. A sticky triple, which contrasts the dry character. An interesting tripel, but not one of my favorites. Lubiere (13796) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 30, 2008
A hazy golden ale with a thick creamy white head. A pleasant aroma of juniper, candy sugar and warming alcohol. In mouth, a spicy savoury ale with coriander, cream, warming alcohol and almost coconut like notes. Very interesting. Bieropholie import, tasted around May 2007. eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 28, 2008
Bottled. Pours deep orange with some small light sediment pieces floating around and a white head. Aroma is banana, clove, slight hint of barbasol shaving cream, belgian yeast, and spices. Flavor is sweet belgian yeast, banana, and well spiced. Good solid body with a slight hint of barbasol throughout the experience. nhorween (645) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 27, 2008
11.2oz. Hazy golden pour with a white head. Spice and malt in the aroma. Hoppy and hugely fruity - apples, pear nectar, tangerine. Matching flavor - sticky and sweet. Decent finish. Nice beer. rocbyter (2118) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - JUN 27, 2008
Light fruit malt aroma. Cloudy golden color with a large white head. Light beginning with a tangy and sweet middle. The sweetness fades in the finish leaving a strong tangy aftertaste.
